The stylists at IKEA always have a few cool decorating tricks up their sleeves when they are creating scenes for their catalogues and this week’s finds are some of my favourite. From slipping a bed into a closet a la Harry Potter to creating a fresh new look using plywood or curtains for headboards. Here’s 5 cool new decorating tricks we spotted from our favourite Swedish retailer.
1. In the Closet
(Above) Move over Harry Potter, sleeping in the closet is getting an upgrade Love this cozy bed in the closet idea we spotted on Livet Hemma from the home of Emmie Bjernvinge. A great idea if you have a small bedroom or maybe a bachelor apartment and need to create more space. Love using the upper shelf for clip-on lighting too. All looks chic in black and white. Makes one want to do this just for fun, yes?
2. Small Space Tall Storage
(Below) In Ikea’s book FIND IT PART 2 they’ve portrayed a range of kitchens and their owners around Sweden. One of the kitchen’s featured is the home of artist Gunnel who decorated an old school where she made smart solutions to fit in a small space. At the same time she respected the house’s history using a classic color scheme. We love the long upper storage along with GRUNDTAL rail for easy access to utensils.
3. A Summer Bath
A fun idea if you have a private spot in the backyard. Utilize a corner of the garden for a soothing bath under the canopy.
